Want to make a big difference in a young student's
life? Consider joining the more than 1,500 Marylanders who
make up the Achievement Counts Speakers Bureau for the
Maryland Business Roundtable for Education.
Working professionals who join the Speakers Bureau
help motivate middle and high school students to envision a
career and to appreciate how doing well in school pays off
later in life.
Volunteer speakers must attend a three-hour training
session in September and commit to making three to five
appearances in a local classroom in the fall.
"We are looking for articulate working people from
various backgrounds and professional experience," said
LaTara Harris, the program director. "More importantly,
they need to be young at heart."
Currently, more than 75 Johns Hopkins faculty, staff
and alumni participate in the program.
